    There are multiple reasons for Olfactory(smell) and Gustatory (taste)Dysfunction. IF the ENT causes are ruled out I suggest you to kind meet a neurologist for carefull physical examination . Also I would advice you to get a CT Brain and MRI Brain done. You can call our Helpline who can suggest you a Neurologist near your area .
